As an anglophone or other foreign visitor, the language barrier can make it hard to get familiar with and understand German culture. This autumn however, Berlin is the place to be for frustrated monoglots.
The brilliant exhibition Germany - Memories of a Nation at the Martin-Gropius-Bau gallery remembers aspects of Germany history from a 'Britisch' point of view, using 200 remarkable objects. If that's not enough, Shakespeare's play Hamlet is on at the wonderful Schaubühne theatre with English/French surtitles. With a raft of other excellent other exhibitions, shows, tours and walks, there won't be a dull moment.
